Prince of Light!

Today, we go back to the original topic of this blog, which was restoring Julius the orange Mini Cooper. I installed the Lucas foglamps, and just need to get some switches and relays to get them wired up. I know they call Lucas the Prince of Darkness because of the sketchy British wiring, but as Tim Gunn says, we can “Make it Work!”

new paint teaser

I’m kind of tired of Henna Red.  So I saw this color on the wall at Maaco and thought I’d change it up a little bit.  Besides, I can always get it repainted again.

DTM Mirrors are painted and hanging in the garage to dry for a day or two before installing. I am still working on finding some convex glass to install though.  Not much to see out of on these badboys!

new mirrors

I finally snagged a set of carbon fiber DTM Mirrors for the M3!  They have a small chip on one, but that’s fine with me cause I got them for a great deal and I’m gonna paint them Henna Red to match the car anyway.  I’m not really into the glossy carbon fiber look.

They had some of that rockblocker clear film on it so it looked like the clearcoat was rough, but then it peeled off and underneath was pretty smooth.  Also, the way the actual mirror fit into the housing was really sloppy, so I’ll get it right and fix the little boo boos before I paint them.  Other than that, I test fit the driver’s side and it was great!

Here’s a real DTM car for reference.

julius junior

Last week, the rain went away long enough for me to paint the mini cooper body that’s been sitting on my Tamiya chassis.  I tried to match the paint as close as I could, but unfortunately when I started spraying, the paint turned out to be metallic.  I guess you can’t really tell from the pictures, but it was kind of a bummer.  It turned out pretty close anyway, but hopefully next time I can find a better match for the paint.  I guess this body will just be a runner then. 🙂

customer cars

Thanks to Todd, I now have photos of a customer’s car that I can post. This one comes from Canada, and looks great!  He did an awesome job of the decals.  I tried it once and didn’t have the skill or patience.

I almost got a C36 AMG before I got a WRX, I think this year I will be getting a Mercedes again so I can be like Michael Schumacher.  😉 I love these Brabus Monoblock wheels!
